I said,"Grandpa what's this picture here?
F
It's all black and white and it ain't real clear

If it looks like we were scared to death
F                                              C
Like a couple of kids just tryin' to save each other
C                        G
You should've seen it in color

Awe and this one here's taken overseas
F
In the middle of Hell in 1943
C                                         G
In the winter time, you can almost see my breath
G
That was my tail gunner: Ole Johnny McGee
         F
He was a High School teacher from New Orleans
       C                                     G

G
If it looks like we were scared to death
F                                              C
Like a couple of kids just tryin' to save each other
C                        G
You should've seen it in color
G
A picture's worth a thousand words
F                                                C
But you can't see what those shades of gray keep covered.
C                        G
You should've seen it in color.

This is me and grandma in the summer sun 
C                                  G
All dressed up the day we said our vows. 
G
You can't tell it here but it was hot that June 
     F
That rose was red and her eyes were blue 
         C                           G
And just look at that smile I was so proud.
